Is the rest of the World finally paying attention?

August 31, 2012

I, and many others like me, have been desperately reporting the murderous growth of Nazism in Greece for quite some time now. But what has been a great shock and disappointment to those of us who think about these things has been the almost blanket silence on the issue in the press and media here and worldwide. Yes there have been a few meagre reports and references to “extreme right wing movements” here and there, a few lukewarm point-of-interest reports about the growing and expanding vicious attacks by the Golden Dawn (often not even mentioned by name) on immigrants in foreign press and media. Almost all reports so far have been in the context of Greek incompetence and botched government, endemic corruption and financial crisis. All reports seem to be made as a sideline to illustrate yet another example of how awful Greece is, not as a serious socio-political tragedy in the making. No one seems to have paralleled this, as I and a few other independents like me have, with the historical rise of Fascist and Nazi movements in Europe only a few short decades ago.

For this reason I am very pleased and made to feel a little ray of hope by the appearance and content of this article in the British Independent newspaper.

I can not emphasise strongly enough how essential and true what Laurie Penny says in this article is.

If the rest of the world continues to ignore the situation here, we will be facing another re-enactment of 1938 -9 in Europe. I don’t really think anyone would consider the prospect of another World War with any relish. Or would they?

Please read this and spread the word.

We need to see a saturation of this kind of analysis in the hopes that the international political community will be embarrassed into taking some form of definite action on this vitally dangerous situation. It is my belief that unless a concerted national and international effort is made to stanch this gaping and bleeding wound in the very flesh of democracy, it will bring about the death of freedom in Greece.

It is way past time for action against the Nazis. NOW. Later would be too late.
